Our History

Yarnfield Park has had a long and varied history. We have operated as a fully commercial training and conference centre for the past five years. Originally the site was known as Beatty Hall being one of a number of accommodation camps in the area serving the Cold Meece munitions factory.

Following the war the G.P.O. opened a training school at the 80-acre site. In 1984 G.P.O. telephones became better known as British Telecom and the centre remained a dedicated British Telecom training centre until the summer of 2010, after which it became a commercial conference and training centre with over 40 event spaces and 338 bedrooms, making it one of the UK’s largest centres.

BT and Open Reach have since decentralised their training programme and the centre is now privately owned and has undertaken a comprehensive programme of renewal and improvement, with upgrades to our bedrooms, meeting spaces, public areas and the installation of a 300Mbps dedicated internet service, which is one of the fastest free services at any venue in the UK.

Our spaces and bedrooms can be booked by anyone organising an event, from small meetings to large scale training, teambuilding, conferences association events and events of faith.
